Whew, lots of stuff going on.
As you all have guessed, we invited more Guinea Pigs into ThereIM, and, for the most part, almost all of them courageously took up the challenge to help us test (one kicked, screamed, and cried like a little boy, but we got them in. Unfortunately, their avatar wasn’t quite…how do I put this? “whole”, when it arrived. Anyway, moving on). As you can imagine we exposed lots of little niggly bugs, almost all of them related to:
- Sending out emails with equal signs in them. Yes, you heard it right.
- Being a NAT’d system where “what we see” is different from “what you see” (a situation which most men in the audience here are well aware) (“Me: Conan”, she sees “You: In your dreams!”)
The good news is that SamSyn and Bruce are working away at it.
Meanwhile, SamSyn continues to work on getting the World-at-Large to work. It’s got a ways to go, and you’ll all be on ThereIM long before you’re in world, but we’re making progress.
Now for the obligatory screen shots:
